Dropped grease filter

Hello, i removed the two side by side grease filters to clean and when i tried to replace them one of them dropped down the opening into the area below. i tried to retrieve it but area is very narrow and deep. i can't see it at all or feel it when i stuck a stick in there to see how far down it is. when i opened cabinet below to try and retrieve from underneath, it is all enclosed in metal casing and there's no obvious opening or access panel. i left the telescoping downdraft in the up position because i'm concerned that if i try to close it the fallen filter will get in way or keep it from closing because of where it has fallen. i've never used one of these telescoping types before, it came with house we bought recently, and there is no owners manual. i called ge help line and they were no help and wanted to send a service call and also checked out online manual and it didn't say anything about this problem, at least as far as i could see. i hope you can help. can it be retrieved, either from above or below? did it fall into an area that will not affect closing of the telescoping section. is it just gone and i need to replace the lost filter? thanks for your help.

Can you suggest a good degreeser to clean cassete filters tried several products but not very effective

I"m not sure what you mean by cassete filters, unless it's two filters. I take mine out and put them in the dishwasher!! Works great, The grease comes out and they shine again after I take them out. It does not hurt them, I have been doing this for years.

How do you replace the charcoal filter in a Homark cooker hood (model no. 02 500560)? The whole filter spins round a short way but doesn't drop out.

Try giving it a slight pull as grease sometimes acumulates and stops it from dropping past the lugs that hold it in place.

Fan has a humming noise and locking up

a.if there were a dead bird inside, you'd know it from the smell! if the outside vent has the proper hood on it, it's doubtful a bird could get into it. possibly a roof-rat, but still- the smell!
b. have you 'de-greased' the filter lately? clogged filter can cause airflow problems, as well as allowing fan blades to become greased up and unbalanced, which could cause a noisy condition. if you can- remove the filter unit and check the fan blades for crud. use a gentle application of windex, rubbing alcohol, or some other gentle solvent to clean the blades. the leading edges usually pick up the most crud. you should be able to see this! carefully, using q-tips, or a small brush, clean off the crud! the fan's probably out of balance. WD40 works pretty well, too. also lubricates the shaft bushing that the blades are attached to. make sure the fan is turned off! duh!! good luck! also- soak the filter in hot water and a good de-greaser for a while, 'til you can see light through it. it's probably aluminum mesh- so use very hot water and a goodly amount of 'grease cutting' dish detergent. rinse well.
once again- good luck! the filter is probably held in place by clips. once removed, you will probably need a flashlight to work on the fan blades. put paper towels, or newspaper down to catch drips!

Dirty range hood filters

You can purchase grease filters for only a few pounds from many super markets, these can be cut to size to suit your hood. Changing charcoals filters is more expensive but should be done every couple of years depending on your usage.

Hi absimp,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your question is: You are having trouble cleaning your downdraft are able to remove filters and clean but there seems to be grease build on the hood as well....The smell is really bad but you can't get down in the hood to clean. Is there anyway to remove the hood in order to clean it better??

The short answer is; not really. But don't be dicouraged yet, you shouldn't have to . There is a brush on a long handle that looks like the kind of brush you would use to wash a glass. I wrap the brush part with a small cloth that is wet with cleaner and just use from above rinsing the cloth as nessessary. If you have trouble finding a brush long enough just go to a plumbing supply and buy a brush made for cleaning the soot out of a boiler. If they know your problem they weill be happy to help.

Feel free contact me again!

Neff cooker hood

the manual i have says that the charcoal filters inside need changing about every 6 months. take out the grease filters then you should be able to turn it and take them out. you may not have these if the extractor vents to the outside. the grease filters can be cleaned with a neutral detergent and then put back in. Make sure the electric is off before you do any of this. Hope this makes sense and helps!
